Valentine's Day Cupcake


Valentine's Day Cupcakes

The special Valentine's day gift for my husband.

Of course, it's chocolate cupcakes!










[Tutorial] How to make a fondant teddy bear


Finally! This is my second tutorial posting.
"How to make a fondant teddy bear"

The teddy bear is from my Valentine Day Cupcakes.

I love using teddy bear on my cupcakes & cakes. 
They are adorable to look at. Especially, when it's small.. 
This is my way to make a teddy bear.
I tried my best to take pictures of every single step to make it easier for you.

You will need:
White fondant( your choice )
Black fondant( your choice)
Quilting tool
Small round ball tool
Knife
Brush & water or Edible glue
1 spaghetti stick


Making a body
I use spaghetti to support body & head. 
Press sides of top & bottom to attach legs and arms for next steps.

Dividing 
 There is another way to make legs & arms.
You can roll the ball out (not dividing) long, cut it in the middle diagonally.
This way you can make two legs or arms at the same time.

Making Legs

Shaping a foot

Quilting
 Brush edges of legs with water or edible glue and attach to the body.

Making arms 



Attaching a head



Shaping an ears
 Press the middle of the ear with a small round ball tool.
Trust me, this makes a big difference!

You can also put a tiny round fondant dot( colours of your choice )
 in the middle of the ear.

* I also attached a small round ball on his mouth spot.

A red heart for Valentine's day

Make eyes & a mouth with a black fondant

Finished! 
Send my love to MyCupKates' visitors & fans.xx

I hope this tutorial helps you make a sweet teddy bear..
Good luck.

Toy Story Dessert Table


Toy Story Party Dessert Table

I'd like to share Tori's dessert table for her son(Ethan)'s 1st birthday party.
After she picked up baked goodies, I had no idea how she was going to put them together.
I tried my best to keep her theme & colour.. so everything could go well with her plan.
When I saw pics of Ethan's Dessert Table she had organised, I was so excited!
She did an awesome job and the table looked very professional.
Thank you for lightening up my work, Tori. & Happy birthday, Ethan!
Special thanks to Phuong for great photograph.









Thank you for visiting MyCupKates.

Toy Story Cake


Toy Story Cake & Cupcakes & Cookies
Happy 1st Birthday, Ethan!


Edible Woodie! It took me 4-5 hours to make him with sugar..(except for time to dry!!)
It was quite a challenge but I'm so proud of this sugar woodie for Ethan!


I don't usually use edible pens ( but I have lots of colourful ones!)
This time, they were so handy and made woodie's shirt & vest awesome!!


Party colour theme cookies ( Red/Blue/White )


Toy story theme cupcakes


A sneak picture for my fans! xx
( It seems to be a little scary, though. >.< )

Thank you so much for visiting MyCupKates.
